S5 dimming led's, broken, again?

Recommended Posts

After 12hours in a 6 days print, i want to dim the frame lights. Doesn't work. slider moves, but lights stay on 100%. Come on guys, this becomes rediculous.

My whole room is lit up by this printer. For a whole week?

It is my main frustrationswith this machine, from the start, but until now i was able to dim to "almost" 0.

The machine is on the latest firmware, and resetting at this point is not an option.

What can be the reason?

Do i really have to put a switch on my leds? Anyone has an electrical diagram? warranty when i "mod" this machine?

It's just a bug that seems to have come back, once you can reset your machine it will be fine and with luck the next update will fix it for good and its also due to add support for LED's going totally off and not just dim. So i would wait it out before cutting into wires on a £6k machine.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
